Join Us for Virtual Demos about the Commercial Platforms Program
GSA’s Commercial Platforms program streamlines federal purchase cardholders’ buying processes by providing access to eight commercial online marketplaces that support federal and agency purchasing rules. These platforms offer numerous features to ensure a modern, seamless shopping experience for routine commercial products.

We’re hosting live demonstrations highlighting key features and benefits available to streamline and simplify micro-purchasing through the Commercial Platforms program. The Zoom sessions are held weekly and feature the Commercial Platform program’s awardees. If you miss a session, don’t worry – sessions are recorded and will be made available for later viewing.

These demonstrations are exclusively for government personnel (not for industry partners). If you have questions about this event, please reach out to us at CommercialPlatforms@gsa.gov.

Industry Partners: Take Advantage of Training on Market Research
As a GSA industry partner, you can provide valuable market-research data to inform the purchasing decisions of GSA customers. Participating in our research allows you to:
  • Showcase your products and services to potential buyers

What are the benefits? GSA’s Market Research As a Service (MRAS) research is easier and more efficient, making it a great business-development activity for your company. Plus, by participating in MRAS, you can:
  • Reach a wider audience of government buyers
  • Increase your visibility in the market
